Some links to animations and additional information on neuroscience are on the study guides for lectures 16 & 18  from 2004. See lecture 16 & 17 and lecture 18. If you need a back up text for the material that isn't in Becker, you might want to try Kimball's on line text.

I. Action Potential

To review the action potential, try problem 8-2, A-C, & 8-3 to 8-4.
